5G Development Conference

Tuesday, 5th January 2021 0930hrs – 1430hrs

This event will delve into the future of 5G across the UK, the development activity this will unlock and the major changes it’ll make to the built environment.

As well as enhancing user experience, the roll-out of 5G will have implications across the built environment. It presents a wealth of opportunities – through more efficient use of VR and AR and the expansion of the Internet of Things etc, but also brings challenges due to factors such as its shorter range and reduced ability to travel through obstacles.

This conference will help you understand the consequences 5G will have on the industry, as well as showcasing some of the major developments that are planned in order to bring forward 5G and its associated infrastructure, including discussions of the procurement process and opportunities to get involved.  

More speakers will be announced shortly.
